World Peace from a Spiritual Standpoint
“We look forward to the time when the Power of Love will replace the Love of Power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.” --William Ewart Gladstone
“Those that are at war with others are not at piece with themselves.” --William Hazlitt
The Great Revelation
On Christmas Eve, my wife said that she wanted to go somewhere, and without missing a beat, I replied, “You want to go to Mount Rubidoux.”
“How did you know that?” she asked.
Marilyn and I are in such sync that we often know what the other is thinking. My wife also knows when certain “I Love Lucy” episodes are about to play. For example, one time Marilyn was thinking about a particular scene. She turned on the television, and lo and behold, it was the same exact scene in her head. What are the chances of that? This has happened to her at least five times, maybe more, because Marilyn doesn’t keep count. I am also prone to synchronicities. I had an interesting encounter a few days ago. I was looking at Kittythedreamer’s profile, regarding her location, “Tir na Nog.” Where is that, I wondered? The very next day, while reading David Wilcock’s book entitled, “The Source Field Investigations,” I stumbled across the name “Tir na Nog” by accident (Of course I don’t believe in accidents). I wasn’t consciously looking for that name. The name found me. And when I looked for the meaning of the name, it said that “Tir na Nog” was a mystical land in Celtic folklore. What are the chances of me finding that word the very next day without even looking for it? The reason I share these two examples is to point out the fact that everything in this Universe in connected. The space between us is not really empty. The mathematics of Nassim Haramein, as well as the research of David Wilcock, proves this. Now, let’s get back to Mount Rubidoux, and my important discovery.
While taking a walk up Mount Rubidoux, in Riverside, my wife and I decided to head for the castle and bridge that was situated on the eastern side of the mountain. Don’t ask me why, but I had this strong desire to see these two things. When the bridge was within eyesight, I noticed two words on the side of it that caught my eye:
I was amazed, because I never, ever, noticed those beautiful words on the bridge before. Marilyn and I walked by it many times, but never saw it. It is also important to note that we approached the castle and bridge from another angle. We saw these two things from a different perspective. That’s the key word.
Life is about perspective.
We are all seeing the world through a unique set of eyes. And carved on the outside of the castle were the names of many countries. I imagined all these countries living in peace. Then I thought to myself, why aren’t, we, human beings living in peace. We have these huge brains. We have sophisticated technology that has sent a man to the moon, but we have not achieved world peace. I remembered an important line in the movie “Powder”:
“Our technology has surpassed our humanity.”
Why? Is technology more important than the pursuit of world peace? Or is there something more to this story? Yes. My research and spiritual awakening has taught me that we have been sold a bunch of lies that makes the attainment of world peace seem rather difficult. Let me share a list of those lies that creates a separateness consciousness:
- You are just a biological machine.
- We are insignificant; we cannot make a difference in the world.
- We are separate from God.
- We are separate from one another.
- We are separate from everything.
Now here is the true list:
- We are spiritual beings having a human experience.
- We are powerful creators that can create the world of our dreams.
- We are connected to God.
- We are connected to one another.
- Everything is connected.
These spiritual truths are common knowledge to those that understand Unity Consciousness. This is something that we are moving into as spiritual beings. During the late 90s, I went to a concert that featured the Mexican rock group Maná, as well as Carlos Santana. Both of these artists discussed the importance of Unity Consciousness. In 2002, Maná released an album entitled “Revolución de Amor.” Translated into English, this phrase means, “Revolution of Love.”
Why a revolution of love?
You are not going to attain world peace through a division and conquer mentality. Love is the vehicle to obtain world peace, along with the realization that we are all connected. As the U2 singer Bono has said,
“We are one, but we are not the same.”
We are expressions of this Oneness in a myriad of different forms. We all come from the same source (God), but at the same time we are unique and different, experiencing Creation through our own perception. You could also say that we are each a different facet of the same diamond.

Separateness is an Illusion
Many have forgotten their spiritual roots and have bought into the idea of separateness through hundreds and hundreds of years of disinformation. Those, of power and control, wanted to use fear as a way of controlling people. Their agenda was to create the false reality that we are separate from God and each other. When this is in place, it creates an “Us against Them” mentality. Take a look at the song “It Doesn’t Have to Be” by Erasure. Andy Bell shares the fact that we don’t have to buy into this game of separateness:
“You are on one side
I am on the other
Are we divided?
Why can’t we live together?
There are no rights
This isn’t your decision
We need to talk of changing things
But no one wants to listen
It doesn’t have to be like that
It doesn’t have to be like that
It doesn’t have to be like that”
Another powerful example of the dangers of separateness thinking is from the song “People are People” from Depeche Mode. Here is what Martin Gore has to say:
“So we’re different colors
And we’re different creeds
And different people have different needs
It’s obvious you hate me
Though I’ve done nothing wrong
I’ve never even met you so what could I have done
I can’t understand
What makes a man
Hate another man
Help me understand”
I want to make it clear that this separateness thinking is something that is taught. I was in a store one day with my wife, and I observed the interactions of two children: An African American toddler was saying “hi” to another toddler of Arabic descent. This seemed like a beautiful thing between two different cultures until the Arabic mother stopped her son from saying “hi” back. I firmly believe that if these two toddlers were left to their own devices, they would probably be playing with one another; however, the mother believed in the illusion of separateness. If the mother could see past the illusion, she would have witnessed Unity Consciousness. Now, I would like to share one more example of this separateness thinking. This is a song by Talking Heads called “Cool Water.” Here is what David Byrne writes:
“His skin is the same as yours
Is he not made the same as you?
And some have fallen down
And blood spilled on the ground
Work, work, work
Till his life is done
The old man…is at our door…and he’s
Knocking…Knocking…as his neighbors weep
…each day repeats…are we nothing in your
Eyes?...Someone answer, someone answer…this
Rusted garden gate…can barely even stand…
Their work is over now…and the rest will be at
Is there skin not the same as yours?
Can they sit at the table to drink
And his lungs are filled with rain…
And the water’s rushing in…”
It should be obvious that separateness thinking can lead to all sorts of atrocities. Taken to extreme we have seen wars and genocide take place on this planet throughout history. It doesn’t have to be like this if we realize we are all connected. When we hurt another, we are actually hurting ourselves. I remember watching a World War I film in which a soldier killed a foreign soldier. The foreign soldier lay on the ground dying. The soldier that stabbed him apologized to the foreign soldier:
“Why did I kill you, my brother?”
The soldier realized that he was connected to this foreign soldier. At the very least, they were both human beings. On the deepest level, there was no separation between the two. But those that want to control people want you to buy into the illusion of separateness, because when everyone wakes up to the fact that they been lied to, the game is over for the manipulators. It is up to us to bring peace to the world. This is not as difficult as it may seem. We are powerful spiritual creators. We are connected to God and each other. We have the power of our imagination fueled with love, kindness, and compassion to transform our world. It has been proven scientifically that our thoughts affect the world. Meditation has also been proven to affect the world in positive ways. According to Gregg Braden, “The minimum number of people required to ‘jump start’ a change in consciousness is the square root of 1% of a population.” Jack Johnson shares his view about world peace:
“And someday at Christmas, there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found out what life is really worth
Then there will be peace on Earth”
And, as an ending to this article, I would like to end with a few phrases from John Lennon’s song “Imagine”:
“Imagine all the people living life in peace
You may say
I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And the world will live as one”
Peace, Light, and Love,
